There is no need to have a crisis management plan until you need one; and if you do not have one when you need it you and your company will be unprepared to address a crisis and as a result will have a serious problem. There are many examples of an unprepared and untrained high-level company official responding poorly in a media interview simply because they have not been trained as part of the crisis management plan protocol. For example: having an untrained person interviewed by the media could result in miss statements and incorrect information presented to the media and as a result to the community directly or indirectly affected by the crisis.
Why should you attend?
This webinar addresses risks that lead to a crisis, how to prevent a crisis, behaviors that may lead to a crisis and behaviors during and after crisis. It focuses on how to provide resources, and how to manage the media during a crisis. It discusses the situation room, developing messages, the nines stages of crisis, crisis scenario development, crisis exercises and the crisis management system among others.
Some have said that a company should not put money into preparing, updating and testing a crisis management plan. They believe it is better spent on entertaining clients or increasing inventories. To these people I ask what is the cost to have a facility closed for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 year or permanently as a result of a crisis.
